NOTE from The Prof: The equation in the video is just one possible reaction. Under conditions as extreme as this, several different oxides or phosphorus could be formed (most likely a mixture of them). This is also a very dangerous and sensitive reaction. We have deliberately not shown too much detail and encourage people NOT to try it themselves.
